Ramon wins Maryhill

Ramon Konigshausen earned his first ever IGSA World Cup victory today at the Abec 11 Maryhill Festival of Speed.   The tough final round featured a controversial last corner crash that resulted in the disqualification of second place finisher Martin Siegrist.


Airflow Fuse

On Airflow Skateboard’s latest creation you always feel where your feet are; thanks to a unique 3D concave! The precisely molded, tub-like standing platform features slightly conical, 12° raised edges. A 5° footlock keeps your feet on board at any time.



The «Fuse» is designed as a drop through board, yet works fine topmount. With a very low center of gravity, your ride will be stable even at high speeds. Thanks to twin tip you can ride it in both directions. The «Fuse» also feels really good going sideways!

Greenskate

For Greenskate Zurich we did something out of the ordinary: Most people that attended expected us to go up and ride the local hill. Instead we followed a given route through the city and along the riverside, stopped at a shopping mall, and went to BBQ at the lake side. This is where people could see us with our longboards and green shirts, having fun on our “truely green means of transport”.

Pump Action

Ob als praktisches Fortbewegungsmittel in der Stadt, für den Einsatz bei urbanen Freeride-Sessions oder einfach um locker mal einen Trick auf Lager zu haben – Das Airflow Pump Action ist der perfekte Begleiter für den alltäglichen Gebrauch.

Das Board ist drop-through, ohne Vorspann und hat eine angenehme "lip-concave". Es wurde absichtlich auf Vorspann verzichtet um ein bessere Handling des Boards herauszuholen. Die "lip-concave" verleiht dem Deck einen natürlichen, surfigen Flex. Dank diesen Eigenschaften kann man auf dem Pump Action unbeschwert lange Distanzen zurücklegen. Zusätzlich haben wir die Nose und Tail verlängert, damit auch mal ein kleiner Trick oder das Überspringen kleiner Hindernisse kein Problem sein werden.

Das Pump Action ist in zwei Flexklassen erhältlich: Soft und Medium
